The Meehan Replacement Scrum Begins

Massachusetts state rep. James Eldridge has formed a congressional "exploratory" committee and, more importantly, hired three staffers for the theoretical campaign to replace Marty Meehan, should Meehan leave to become chancellor of UMass-Lowell as rumored.

Eldridge, an Acton Democrat, has just put out a press release announcing the moves. He's the first to jump in so officially.

I've previously suggested that one candidate from the southern part of the district will emerge. With Pam Resor apparently choosing not to run, Eldridge (whose house district is almost entirely within Resor's senate district) is well poised for that role.
